Search the Caroline Minuscule database

The Caroline Minuscule database is an online index of manuscripts written in or containing Caroline minuscule. It was created as part of A Partial Survey of Centres Writing Caroline Minuscule, c. 700–1000, a series of historiographical summary articles on the history of Caroline minuscule, and the manuscripts written in that script, in some of the major known early medieval scribal centres. As each new article is published, the manuscripts from that scribal centre will be added to this database. All records contain classmarks, as well as links to online digital editions where available. At the bottom of the page, your search results will be displayed on a Google map with each scribal centre proportionately displayed according to the parametres of your search.

We still have unclaimed scribal centres. If you would like to participate in our project, please visit our project page.

For a detailed explanation of the scope and purpose of the articles published as part of A Partial Survey of Centres Writing Caroline Minuscule, c. 700–1000, and of this database, please see the project Introduction.
